Organize your own private soiree around one or more books of local author, Jean Zimmerman.

This non-fiction book reveals the fascinating history of Yonkers’ Philipse Manor Hall, the Philipse Family, and the Dutch influence in the day-to-day lives of Yonkers’ residents. “The Orphanmaster” takes place in 1600’s New York — fiction, it profiles the first serial killer in America and the people who tried desperately to catch him. “Savage Girl”, jumps ahead to the Gilded Age and tracks the transformation of a wild child to a debutante. Auction package includes all three books and an hour Zoom conversation with the author (up to eight people).
